Veterans shoots himself in VA parking lot

A veteran, Barry Gay, 50, killed himself in the parking lot of Hines VA Hospital. See Proviso Herald.
Maureen Dyman, spokesperson for hospital, said Gay never entered the hospital and the last time he received treatment from a VA hospital was in 2002.

I expect there was health care Gay would have benefited from--mental health or otherwise--that the VA failed to provide this veteran.

  • How do you know? Huge leap of faith here. Typical of a bum who lives off of others, who won't publish his "honorable" discharge papers. (Because they don't exist) and wouldn't come clean about his criminal conviction that was later expunged. You are a leech and a fraud. Just my (and many others) opinion.

  • quack, I'm calling your bluff.

    Give me a call, 773-43O-3538, and make an appointment to come to my house and look at my DD214. Be sure to bring photo ID so I know who you are.

    Or are you afraid?

  • Carl, your expectations are correct and reasonable minds should suspect that Mr Gay may have even sought help prior his self inflicted killing of himself and prior to the hospital's discovery of his dead body in the car parked in the their lot.

    Question? Why would a veteran who lived on the south side of Chicago venture to the VA Hospital in Maywood when he was closer to the Westside VA in Chicago?

    My guess is that if you probed a little further and a little deeper you'd discover that there is more to it that meets the eye. Certainly more than a little a briefing from the hospital adminstrator. Hmmm?
